Maria Panichelli to Present Deltek’s Webinar “CDA Appeal Litigation: Process and Common Government Defenses”
Join Maria Panichelli on Thursday, December 16, 2021, as she presents Deltek’s webinar, titled “CDA Appeal Litigation: Process and Common Government Defenses.”
Federal government contract disputes are unique. Unlike other types of contract disputes where you can initiate an action in court, federal claims are governed by specific regulations, which must be dealt with using particular procedures involving administrative review and special courts.
Recovery of monetary damages begins with an understanding of the processes used to litigate claims arising out of federal government contracts. Our experienced government contracts attorney Maria Panichelli discusses the statutory requirements for claims and identifies the applicable deadlines to litigate a claim before the Boards of Contract Appeals and the Court of Federal Claims. The most common defenses raised by the government – Notice, Authority, and Waiver/Release – will also be reviewed, as well as how to overcome them.
